KB Topic Decentralized Cloud

The idea of a decentralized cloud is to provide PaaS using decentralized resources. Instead of selling fractions of large scale computers in centralized locations, like Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure do, decentralized cloud platforms sell small chunks of computing resources in participants' personal computers (or even in large scale servers, should they choose to participate).

CPU time and hard drive space can be sold via the blockchain and provided as a service. The Ethereum Virtual Machine is an attempt at building a global scale supercomputer using Ethereum and GAS as the payment method for computing time. Other blockchain-based projects exist to sell hard disk space using decentralized platforms (Filecoin and Sia, for example).

The set of decentralized computing resources that can be sold is collectively called a decentralized cloud.
